Two other Fermilab measurements have already benefited from it.

After a postdoctoral fellowship at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, he joined Fermilab as a Wilson Fellow in 1992.
The Fermilab experiment is only the second to support the possible existence of sterile neutrinos, which were first postulated after an experiment called the Liquid Scintillator Neutrino Detector in the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LSND) in New Mexico, conducted in the 1990s.
The camera was built and tested at Fermilab, the lead laboratory on the Dark Energy Survey, and is mounted on the National Science Foundation's 4-meter Blanco telescope, part of the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile, a division of the National Optical Astronomy Observatory.
Located 470 meters from Fermilab's Booster Neutrino Beamline, MicroBooNE is the middle of the trio, to be joined in 2018 by ICARUS, the farthest detector, at a distance of about 600 meters from the beamline, and the Short-Baseline Near Detector, placed about 100 meters from the source.
Dan Hooper, an astrophysicist at Fermilab in Batavia, Ill., and a lead author of the study, said that the signal they find cannot be explained by currently proposed alternatives and is in close agreement with the predictions of very simple dark matter models.
Fermilab officials, however, plan to use the magnet in a physics experiment called Muon g-2 that will study subatomic particles at their lab in Batavia, outside Chicago.
AProtons Nobel laureate physicist from Fermilab called Leon Lederman wrote a book in the early 1990s about the search for the Higgs boson.
The CERN and Fermilab results might point toward a synthesis of ideas that have long been in conflict: Einstein's absolute could coexist with quantum physics' indeterminacy; relativity's notions of time and space could be complemented by string theory's reliance on additional dimensions.
Stefan S|ldner-Rembold, of the University of Manchester, who leads the experiment at Fermilab said: "Our latest result is based on about twice as much data as over a year ago.
Fermilab researchers are now at work on the camera that will be used to collect optical images for study, Frieman said.
